Empress Miniatures 3.7 inch Mountain Howitzer and Crew.
From Empress Miniatures' Jazz Age Imperialism range. This gun came into service in 1917 so one of these will be making its way to Mesopotamia to join the Indian Army in the advance on Baghdad. Paul Hicks' sculpts are just an absolute pleasure to paint. The gun comes in many many parts and is a bit of a pain to put together. It makes for a beautifully detailed model but there was much swearing and headscratching during construction as, true to all the best kits, there were no instructions. After I had put the thing together I found this pictorial walkthrough on Paul's blog (he who is part of Empress Miniatures).
